Roby King Galleries presents the artwork of Martha Brouwer and Brian Fisher May 3 through June 1 in the show "Storytellers."

An artists’ reception is 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 3.

Brouwer’s paintings celebrate the interconnected of all life — the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, humans. Through the exploration of pattern and texture she illustrates our dependence on each other.

Fisher’s source and inspiration is Greek mythology, and this body of his printwork primarily reflects the mythic journey of the ship Argos as told by Apollonius of Rhodes, in his epic poem “The Argonautica.”

As a printmaker, Fisher is exploring a unique “rust” process to create his monotypes. His designs are cut by waterjet into steel plates and the steel is then treated to create rust.  The rust design is transferred to muslin then sealed and mounted to wood panel and wax finished. In addition, Fisher creates impressive wall-mounted steel relief sculptures.

The gallery is located at 176 Winslow Way East.
